who Serve Their Country

A Message to the Men and Women who Serve their Country, Turtle Island.

   I have great respect for you.  However, in the past, when you were the armed and decorated solders of the United States of America, you were constantly misled by our government and made to do a great deal of dirty work to maintain a level of comfort for  the few and the White [mostly], but maintain a level of real oppression and exploitation for far too many people of color and even White poor people.

     I have no real power that I know of except the power of a man in front of a computer and a typing board and the powers that GOD has given me. I don’t fully know How to utilize those powers. If I did and if they were great, the world would be a much different place.

     I ask that you not sit still and allow our government, in its present state and form, do things that you feel are unjustified, illegal, illrighitious, of unethical without hearing from you as an organized power and an organized voice.  Not just the veterans among you, but also the enlisted and active-duty women and men who want to speak out, must be able to do so.

     You have options. You can write letters anonymously, you can petition the government anonymously, you can ask you friends state-side to make their voices and your voices heard, you can buy stocks with your pay in progressive and revolutionary companies, you can buy stocks in companies that are awful politically [discriminators, polluters, haters of humanity, etc.] and make your voices of decent known among those companies or corporation’s Boards and Directors and their Presidents, Founders and Chief Executive Officers. I am not demanding that you do this. I am saying this is something you can do to continue in the armed forces and keep aor develop a good conscious. You can also petition your government, your congress people, your governor, your community leaders, and your families about starting a Peace Time Economy where you would get active-duty non-war, non-threatening jobs that would never find your lives to be in danger.  You must also, if you can and want to, no matter if you are straight of Gay, you must, in good conscious, petition your government to never hold you back for expressing your sexuality in a wholesome, open and acceptable Way, if that is what you want to do.  

  All these things I am asking you to do, not requiring you to do. I also think you must write your new leadership, the Native American People.  Some of the organizations you should write and pledge yu allegiance to include The Native American Rights Fund, The National Congress of American Indians; and the American Indian College Fund.  Sned them a few dollars. This takes courage. I can only ask you to do this. I cannot demand it, but I feel it is very important, or I would not have taken the time to write you about it. 

     Stand up for yu rights. Don’t take losing any rights laying down. Read some good books and listen to the news and traditional news sources less.  You will find yourself having more courage to fight the battle at home as well as find yourself closer to GOD. If you want to write me, you may do so at,


I LOVe, you and Respect your decisions to not do anything at all of take an active role in freeing our cuintry from the grips of those who are trying to balance us towards destruction, isolation and regret.  GOD Bless you.

An Important Message to Respected Former Mayor John Street

TO: Former Mayor John Street:

Congratulations on the new portrait that will be in City Hall. I had every intent on attending the unveiling, but found myself sitting in a restaurant -- at no charge -- for dinner. My partner and   I are having a difficult time so he hasn't given me use of His food stamp card. {I always repay Him with a SEPTA pass the next month}. I didn't want to miss a very good dinner, so I missed seeing our finest Black Mayor. I had imagined shaking your hand and saying hello and smiling. I remember seeing you in the Walnut Street Theatre and we looked at each other as some strange energy seemed to Pass between us that has existed since the tie of the Pharoses of Egypt // Africa. I know you had the best Police Commissioner we EVER had in Sylvester Johnson. I know you had a level of professionalism and Black inclusion that has been missing ever since. I remember interviewing you when I was a cub reporter for the Philadelphia Tribune back in the late '70's and early '80'You were on City Council and I was covering North Philadelphia. I'm saying all this to ask you to continue to visit the prisons and Black men and Black women in the prisons. Thank you for being the best Mayor you could be. I probably could not have done such a job myself at including women, gays and lesbians and other people of color. The one short-falling, was I thought, the lack of new promised recognized privately-held Black hotels. We be still working on that one. Here you will find my prison reform measures. I want you to read this and send copies out to whoever you need to.  (Still working on this, Will finish later today or tomorrow.).


By Brother Tracy Gibson…


                Prison reform has to start with prisoner reform first.  Warehousing prisoners is not working and has never worked.  What ends up happening is that prisoners might go to jail with a minor violation and find themselves caught up in an in-prison lifestyle that includes permissive male to male sex; learning how to do more crimes that are often more illegal and more sophisticated than the crime(s) that the brother came in for in the first place; an overload of violence; building of a level of self-loathing and self-destruction, self-pity and addiction to illegal drugs.  Black people, especially in North America, find the current system extremely unacceptable, brutal and repugnant. This is mainly because it is the Black race that finds more and more of their men and women in jail doing hard time.  And it is the Black Community that finds these men and women back on their doorstep when they get out.  The more former offenders who are fed back into the community find there selves in negative situations and without coping skills and job skills, the more difficult it will be to take in these brothers and sisters in a positive and productive manner...  The jobs, presently, just don’t exists because when they are asked if they have a ``criminal record’’ or a ``criminal background’’ they are blocked out of many jobs if they answer in the affirmative.  Something drastic and revolutionary needs to be done. And it needs to be done very, very soon… It is a situation that requires massive surgery ``before’’ the patient is lost and another generation or two of Black and largely poor people goes down the drain—including hundreds of Black men who can and will be productive citizens if we keep on the case, demand change and build, invest and save independently…..……




1)            Start a separation system through which the least likely to recommit crimes are taken away from those who are most likely to recommit crimes.  Each prison should have a section for such people who can be given light work to do, the freedom to read books, better food, more open and legitimate contact with the outside, and direct job training that leads to a real living wage job on the outside.  The private sector could be taped for assistance in paying for these training programs, on a voluntary basis, and allowed to benefit from picking the best employees they want from the people who successfully finish such training programs.


2)            Some prisons have already started programs where prisoners who are in same-gender relationships and who are going to be in jail for a long time are respected and allowed to let those monogamous relationships flourish.  This is something that seems to work, at least in the TV documentary I saw recently [On ``Lock Down,’’ on MSNBC... ] It should certainly be examined and given at least pilot program status.


3)            Condoms MUST be given out in prison and used by men who have sex with other men.  It is a proven fact—and many of our Nation’s AIDS-Fighting organizations have the numbers to prove it—that many people who come out of the prison system in North America bring STD’s, including HIV back to the Black community.  Many men, for example, begin to take on female partners again once they leave the prison system.  This is part of the reason why some Black women are finding themselves HIV positive after they have been intimate with former offenders.  Something drastic has to be done here and accepting condom use in the prison system is a good start.  Also: more education about STDs and HIV is desperately needed in the prison system and in Black & Latin communities across North America...  If you are asking how to off-set some of the obvious political outcry that will come from the Right Wing and more family oriented and conservative elements among the electorate and the body politic, all I can say is they are giving our Brothers and Sisters in the neighborhoods and the communities a death sentence by allowing HIV and AIDS to flourish in our community.  Our babies are being born with HIV, partly due to the loose sex in the Prison system where condoms are unavailable and not being used with regularity.  It is worth taking a political hit for this one and you will be strengthening Black families and saving lives.  This must be explained to the electorate.


4)            Rape MUST be disallowed, not encouraged. The level of brutality can be curbed if men are allowed to have training, art classes, access to libraries and even passes out of the prison system for great behavior.  {Remember this is for first-time offenders and people who are deemed to be non-repeat offenders. }


5)                The level of illegal drug use and illegal drug abuse can also be curbed greatly when men see other men getting real training in carpentry, electric, journalism, computers, housing construction (electronics), administrative office work, and engineering etc. Women should have full access to such training as well and be rewarded for great behavior as well. ALL programs should reach across gender, race, religious and sexual orientation lines…


6)            People will have access to this training and an outside job as they are pulled out of the general population for great behavior.  There could even be separate places for the best prisoners far away from people who find themselves in situations where they want to destroy people, property and themselves.  Low level violators who display such ``great behavior’’ should have access to healthcare, dental care, eye glasses, and other benefits as well such as those mentioned before in this document   {like free library use, access to educational television, and conjugal visits…. 


7)              I feel that hardened criminals and repeat offenders DO NOT benefit from harsh treatment.  They should get psychiatric treatment and be allowed to stay alone as much as possible – especially if they are violent or have an extensive record of violence.  All prisoners must have a right to healthy, decent food and food must not be part of any type of punishment. Neither should being put among men who are hostile or violent to any group you might ``belong to.’’ The entire North American society needs to take a real hard look at the level of violence within our prison systems, & our borders and find ways of stemming the violence through less violence on television and in movies, more educational programming on television {some centered on How bullying hurts children and all people.  Greater emphasis on education in the school system on using peaceful means to stem conflicts, and through other avenues such as positive & constructive programs in churches and Mosques throughout the United States of Native America & much of the rest of the world......


8)            Violence coming from staff, guards and other formal prison officials is deeply unacceptable and should be met with criminal charges and financial liability.


9)            Prison populations are now, in North America, as diverse as the general population.  Diversity should be respected and differences should be celebrated and understood, not punished and repudiated.  An increase in cross-cultural experiences should be emphasized, not de-emphasized.


10)          Celebrations in prisons, for birthdays, holidays, and better food for such events should be given out according to great behavior as well as free access to educational television, radio, libraries, computers, music and constructive movies…


11)          As mentioned earlier, there should be an emphasis on family visits, better food and other benefits for people who want to work and who have ``Great Behavior’’….

12] If Brothers are well behaved it seems to me that short of prison allowed sexual liaisons with their mates or husbands or wives from the outside they could be allowed to have space alone with a nice bed to watch adult videos and have the proper materials such as lotion and towels to be intimate with themselves {masturbate} so the sexual tension and rape could be greatly decreased and brought under control. We all know, and it has been proven by other activists, that our Brothers and Sisters are being warehoused and railroaded into the Prison Industrial system to be used for labor {at $22. An hour by  corporations like Monsanto and Halliburton.} 

13] For Men and women who have really been obeying  the rules and treating themselves and others with respect, they MUST be allowed to have sexual liaisons with their mates or husbands or wives from the outside.  These visits MUST be totally condoned by the prison authorities and space MUST be provided that is comfortable, well heated or well air conditioned and special meals must be prepared.  Of course the main goal is for the Brothers and Sisters in the prison systems to get their freedom, and earn it, if you will, through their good behavior.  Taking part in programs that allow them to re-conform and acclimate themselves to dominate society will benefit our whole society and the prison population.  They MUST be given every opportunity to readjust to society and find jobs and programs where they will fit in the communities from which they came from in a timely fashion. 

A previous version of this document was submitted to the Obama Transition Team in November of 2008 by Brother Tracy Gibson; Re-submitted to the President of the United States Mr. Barack Obama, on April 11th, 2012.

Also sent to the Prison Commissioner of PA. in April of 2013. And to my cousin: Activist, Poet, Actress Liza Peterson on May 12, 2013.

A further edited version of this Prison Reform Statement will be sent to all prison Administration officials and all prisons within the United States of Native America or Turtle Island over the next few weeks as money allows us to do so.

TO: Stevie Wonder -- If You are not also a GOD, Than I Am Not. Maybe, we are just children of GOD -- I know I feel close to Her!

Dear Stevie: I know you have tried to reach me in the past. I know you have tried to financially support me and the work I do for Black People. I am sending you a resume that describes much of my work. Your work -- especially in the 1970's -- was phenomenal, earth moving, and life-changing. ``All in LOVe is Fair'' comes to Mind as well as ``Boogie on Reggae Woman.''  I am sending this letter to thank you. For doing so many, many wonderful things for Black People, Poor People, Human Rights, and so much more to create a rainbow of hope and LOVe for everyone. You create musical perfection and your LOVe for us all has shown through. You, like me, are an Earth Father -- a man who works hard to bring laughter to the Poor, hope to Black People and decency to our World. I almost cried when I heard you pay for Blind People to be lifted up to feel the face of the New Martin Luther King statue in Washington, D.C. There are so many, many things I LOVe you for and for which I will never forget you. I am going to a Black Rights, Black History, Black Pride demonstration in Center City Philadelphia -- if the Lord lets me live another Day -- tomorrow at 11 A.M. at Seventh and Locust Street. (As it turned out I could not get there because I had more pressing work to do at the Free Library). I promise to listen to your music in my head. I don't have a walk man {Ole School} or iPOD, -- New School -- but your work and your music will be on my mind. If you can, I would like you to support a movie about Marcus Garvey. This Black Hero is someone needed on film for our youth -- sometimes lost -- (they) need to emulate. Please call Mr. Denzel Washington about this as soon as you can. I thank you again for the incredible work you have done.

Thank You,
Thank You,
Thank You,

GOD Bless YOU and Have a happy, Joyful Father's Day,

A Cry to Black Youth ``We Can Do Better''

I have not done this yet, but I think if I asked a group of Black youth if they had ever bought a lottery ticket, many hands would go up. By the same token, if I ask a group of Black youth How many of them had invested in the stock market {In Black companies} or bought stock in Black companies, I don't think the majority of hands would go up at all. Is this the fault of the White man? Yes. The School system the White man largely controls does not teach much about investing in Black companies through the stock market and How this can help our entire Black community. But let's over ride the White man and his influence for about 900 years. If you know of any youth about 20 or 25, they can make a great much on the stock market if they invest consistently for 40 or 50 years. I Am 60 and just getting the message, but there is a great deal of Hope for Black youth, but they have to start changing some behaviors and think more in a can-do Way and more positively. For Black youth, this means only two pair of sneakers, few new clothes and less hot tickets for Hot movies and Hot live concert events. {I have to remind you that some stocks pay dividends, so you may only have to do without for a short time}.  It might also mean investing in the stock market instead  and doing the proper research on the net to find the correct and proper stock to buy. Investing in Black stocks is a Way to stabilize Black communities, bring about Black prosperity, help Black institutions like Black schools, Black churches, Black Think Tanks, Black sororities and Black fraternities, and Black Social Service agencies. But the best stocks that are with companies that have the kind of good or great values, ethics and standards you want to emulate or perpetuate. Read the company's Mission Statements and read their Annual Reports back a few years. Find out what their values are and if they match or compare to some of your best, good and highest values.  (If you buy stocks n companies that don't treat their workers correctly, have clean air-conditioned factories, pay good wages, etc., you are really supporting the oppression of People who probably look just like you -- People of color in usually a foreign land.). I think this would not be a good thing. Choose good stocks with good companies that really care about their workers, the industry they are in, the environment and people in general. Read up on How to establish good ethics and good values for yourself. It is not only about going to church of Mosque. You can pick media icons like Angela Bassett, Will Smith,  Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis, and or thespian Denzel Washington. Such People are not only great to watch on television and in movies, but have the kind of values about Black People, and themselves, that you should consider worthy of emulating. You don't have to meet such Black People for them to be characters you will want to emulate. This activity sure will get you ahead a great deal quicker than hanging around with troubled friends who might be wanting to pull you down. This is why I don't smoke pot or joint. I don't need anything that is illegal or not recommended or subscribed by a doctor, that will make my thoughts unclear, cloudy or unbalanced.

Plenty of Good Vendors on 52nd Street

Between  Chestnut Street and Sansom Street on 52nd Street, there are plenty of Good vendors who just happen to be Black. Enjoy their treats and services and products, and know you are helping money roll around in a good Way back to our Black community. I, myself, bought some Golden Sand cologne for men for only $5. and me and my companion really LOVe it.  Macy's had cologne on sale for 20 % off, but the asking price was $66. Just How much money does that leave in my pockets -- to invest in Black stocks, and buy other products at Black companies. ALOT!! Call me if you would like some other tips about investing in Black stocks; buying real estate in a Black neighborhood; or other stuff that will help you out as a Black investor. 1 (215) 823 9985.

Black Men Should Speak Up in Therapy By Tracy Charles Gibson

🌍What I say to Black Men Who Won’t Speak Up In Therapy…///////  By Tracy Charles Gibson…

**Say Brother, I heard you don’t speak up in therapy. You have problems you don’t want to talk about. I understand this, but do you know How much it cost for therapy? A therapist is a trained professional who can help you with your problems, but not if you don’t speak up. Can your problems really be as specifically related to you as your thinking? Is your suffering really that awful.   When you say something about what is bothering you in therapy, the healing really begins in earnest.  It won’t happen by osmosis.  It will be painful at first, but once you get into it, well it is like sex. You will actually enjoy it.  I spent the first three years in therapy actually crying and talking to my therapist. Plus I had to pay out of pocket. I had a private psychiatrist. That cost big money. Guess what, it is the best investment I ever made during my whole life. Another thing I noticed is that people can’t see or understand How therapy is helping at first. It is invisible, odorless and tasteless – the progress that is.  What it does help with is not letting your wife or significant other, or boyfriend, get under your skin to the point where you go off and hurt someone, or stand in the middle of a room at home and scream. Or you just don’t want to talk and avoid your mate to the point that you can’t accept kissing, hugging or sharing your intimate times together. Life is to enjoy, not tolerate in drudgery. Are you hiding behind something like an extreme faith that is closing in on you instead of allowing you to open up, enjoy life and experience true freedom?  Something is wrong and you need to open up and talk about it and deal with it. No matter what it is, there are others who have similar problems and similar situations. I invite you to read what I’ve written on my blog about my own confessions. Log onto (Look for True Confessions or Confessions). If you think I didn’t have a difficult time writing this and opening up to the public, well you would be wrong. It really hurt even after 30 plus years of therapy.  But I did it for you Brother, so I could be an example of success.   I have found therapy extremely helpful in solving problems and coming up with solutions for problems both social and interpersonal.  It has helped me manage crisis; talk to family members about things family members don’t generally want to talk about; and it has helped me LOVe People who I have wanted to just disappear in the past. Now I can talk to them, and I don’t hold the type pf grudges I used to.  Therapy, still is not a panacea.  Therapy active is a real help in coping with problems and opening up doors that will help you thrive in the future. People stay ``stuck’’ for years, not understanding what is going on and unable to get to the root of the situation or problem. Therapy is designed to help blow the blockade away and bring on hope, peace, resolve, GOD, true faith, more decency and an ability to share authentic LOVe. LOVe – not as a victim, but as a partner who benefits from true intimacy, sharing and caring. The good times with the bad and indifferent times. So open up and share. You’ll be much better for it in the near future.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania   19104
Dear MR. Francis; I wish you a great day and Hope and Pray that the bitter nature of this letter is met with LOVing acceptance and Good Will. The reason I say this is because the true nature of this letter is one of LOVe and caring for my home community of West Philadelphia and LOVe and concern for my Native People – local African Americans.
     *I Am writing about the continuing problem of gentrification in Philadelphia and a solution. The property surrounding the ole site of University City High School needs to be and MUST be taken out of the hands of Drexel University and restored back in the hands of the People of West Philadelphia, namely Black local People and namely my corporate entities listed at the top of this letter.  I will work with the community to make sure I am serving them correctly and with good will and good faith. We are planning a full-service restaurant, a private Black school for 5th graders to the end of High School, a private exclusive movie theatre and stage theatre, a private library and a private personal residence for me – Our President, Founder and Chief Executive Officer – and my business partner. We have budgeted out the cost to be $67,429,000. In private funds to be provided humbly, graciously and with great honor from The Black People of Philadelphia, Philadelphia’s Black Business Community, The Progressive Black Celebrity Community and other progressive Black sources locally, nationally, state-wide and internationally {including Africa}. This is where the line is drawn against the horrendous encroachment and onslaught of continuing ruthless gentrification of Philadelphia’s Native Black Population. We seek political and social support from all sectors, but only want financial support from the sectors mentioned above. All financial contributions will be meticulously monitored and properly researched. All donations deemed unacceptable will be returned with an appropriate letter saying exactly why the funds are not acceptable. We have noticed that improvements at this area have been very slow to materialize and we think this is a GREAT and GODLY thing. I, President, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of our parent company  -- Brother Tracy Gibson and Associates, INC. – Am a member of the first graduating class of University City High School, which just opened for business on  circa 1976. And was torn down just last year (2016) by the School District of Philadelphia. We want that land and I assure you if we are stalled in our plans in ANY way, Mother Drexel and several leading Black activists like the Reverend Paul Washington former Stewart of the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia, will be spinning in their graves and have vowed to make things Very Difficult for Drexel University and our fair city. Injustice is injustice. Fairness is fairness. These wonderful Spiritual entities {Mother Drexel and Reverend Paul Washington} will work hand in hand with City dwellers who are Black to see this project through over the next two years. If you would like to contact me about this important information you may do so at any of the contact points listed. I DO NOT TEXT! Your response to this letter will be posted on my Blog and sent to City Council and other City officials along with a copy of this letter. Both letters will be sent to several Black leaders including attorney Michael Coard, Minister Rodney Muhammad, WURD BLACK Talk Radio—900 AM, The Sunday Sun, Scoop Magazine and Philadelphia Magazine along with other pertinent and important Black leaders including Church leaders, The Reverend Al Sharpton, The Reverend Jesse Jackson and my own Pastor Jeffery Haskins of the Unity Fellowship Christ Church of Philadelphia. I thank you for your consideration and cooperation.

What is the Quickest way to get a repressive, anti-crime bill passed in a time of desired Progressive and positive change?

What's the quickest way to get a repressive, anti-crime, police-pleasing bill passed by City Council in Philadelphia? have someone from the Black community injure a sitting city councilman and watch our talented, responsive City Council take action! Don't get snookered. Keep the pressure on. Healed pretty fast didn't he. I'm just askin. Can anyone from City Council prove to me that this is NOT want happened in the recent attack on a City Councilman?   Am I being bellicose, suspicious, over zealous, stupid or extremely {blank, blank blank}? Maybe all of these or none of these. Call me and let me know.

The Evaluation you long of The Fraternal Order of Police

Human Evaluations of Human Beings on This Precious, Humble Planet Earth.

 Part C.

9} Will the Real Roxanne Jones please sit down. I want you to sit down and rest and relax your feet because they have walked in enough demonstrations for welfare rights and decency for poor and Black People here in Philadelphia. I want you to sit down because you have cared for enough Black children and grandchildren for one life time. You have stood in the face of people like Frank rizzo and Richard Nixon and said ``no you will not kill one more Black man, you bloody bastard. I want you to sit down and take it easy because you have served your People well as head of the Welfare Rights Organization and as a State Senator from Pennsylvania. You are a righteous and lovely Black woman, bold, outspoken, not taking no crap kind of a person with tenacity and courageously perfect before God’s eyes.  How many envelopes did you put together with information about a rally, or a dinner to raise money, or about who to vote for? Plenty. How many rallies have you spoken at even before you became a State Senator? Plenty.    How many phone calls did you make about filling a vacant seat with the correct kind of personality? Plenty! How often were you arrested for disorderly conduct in connection with a demonstration or against an illegitimate police action? Plenty. Your Spirit lives on after your passing and is still hard at work helping our Black community. Live forever Sprit, our Red man and Red friends from our Native Country tells us.  You are not only beautiful with your dark brown to Black skin, you are still the same kind of positive light you were then a few years ago when you left this place of existence. Your Black family and church family LOVes you. I was fortunate enough to interview you for my series on Black women in North Philadelphia. I never forgot the experience and I have LOVed you ever since.  We know times are hard for many Black People right now, but for you, we keep walking and marching and going and signing petitions, and reading the correct books, and eating correctly and drinking clear and clean water from Sistah Atiola’s restaurant at 4505 Baltimore avenue. {``With property E2-Electron Energized Technology, Real Water is beyond alkalinity…’’ It says this right on the bottle. Get Real water.  You have given us many, many victories and asked for so little for yourself.  When I say ``our Black politicians aren’t doing anything much,’’ it is not you I’m talking about. But it is not only what you do, it is the fact that you worked really hard and almost always did things with a high level of ethics and honor and professionalism and decency, especially because you were poor once and had such poor and humble roots. Never forget you, we will never forget you.   Your are like a Jesus Robe we put on each and every day. Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!  Halalouya {LOOK UP SPELLING} .   You are REAL my Sister REAL! Thank you for serving us as Black People. Never forget you and you act as a living role model for males and females alike. GOD BLESS YOU FOR EVER!...

8} Fraternal Order of Police.  I want to start off with the words scoundrels and scallywags, but I want to be nice and be fair and look at their better side. This side, according to many Black Nationalist and Black activists, is never shown because it doesn’t exist. I disagree. It probably does exist.  I know for sure that Alfonzo Deal managed to be a police officer AND a president of the then North Philadelphia Action Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. And I know for sure my uncle Ken, who was a police officer never had one thing to say about the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police. And, if I am not mistaken, never fired His service revolver. Uncle Ken was the one of my Father’s  Brother’s who went to visit Him often when He was sick and living His last days.  For this I will never forget my Uncle Kenneth Gibson. Certainly there is a racist stream that flows through much of the Fraternal Order of Police in Philadelphia. This is a known fact that can be documented every time they get involved, usually foot in mouth first, in just about any city controversy that might involve any police officers. I know for sure also that the Fraternal Order of Police doesn’t get along quite well with the Guardian Civic League – the Black police officer’s union which was also in existence when Deal was head of the North Philadelphia Action branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.  (One of the first demonstrations I went to in Philadelphia was with the Guardian Civic League who was demonstrating against South Africa’s racist social and political policy called Apartheid. A then Jewish friend of mine named Michele Swartz and I carried a mock coffin which represented Apartheid down Broad Street as part of the demonstration. It must have been in the mid to late 1980’s. It would take time for that racist system to cave in. Sadly, to this day, it hasn’t imploded upon itself like it must.). But I digress. Alfonso Deal, at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People,  took over for Cecil B. Moore who is a legendary Black activist with a reputation among ole heads in the Black community like myself,  that just won’t quit.  Anyhow, The Fraternal Order of Police and the Guardian Civic League, which was also around during Deal’s time, don’t get along all the time. What is keeping them at each other’s thoughts? Listen here.  It has to do with politics.  The head of the Guardian Civic League is a Black women Right now.  I forget Her name (Do the Research).  She has come on WURD Black talk radio and has been critical of the Fraternal Order of Police.  This is the great thing about our system. At least it provides for open conversation and disagreements. But I contend we still don’t have a real democracy. But what the police have is a system called the Blue Code. {I don’t know if this system  or code is written or not, but it is real}. It is a code or system that no matter what a police officer seems to do, another police officer will not tell the truth as he or she knows it. This is where the cover ups start and when a Black teenager is harassed or hurt, it sometimes gets covered up along with the truth.  Another police officer will rarely tell the truth on the witness stand, even if she or he knows the truth about a given situation or event or incident.  This, to me, is where the shame of the uniform comes in. I could never wear that Blue uniform and know that such a system of not telling the truth is part of the job. There are many cases of police Brutality in Philadelphia that have ended in the loss of life of a young Black male or female teenager or young adult. This is, in my opinion calculated and unacceptable.  The Fraternal Order of Police in Philadelphia always comes out in favor of the police and say such things are ``justified.’’ I disagree with this. Certainly sometimes our Black youth, female and male, get out of hand when interacting with police sometimes, but they must not pay with their lives. Our youth are often beholden to this first grouping of character traits such as being  gifted, misunderstood,  talented, hard-working, energetic, responsible, courageous, ambitious, smart and ready, willing and able to work. {There are many other Black youth who are born or learn the following grouping of character traits:  knuckle heads,  stupid, foolish, silly, irresponsible, greedy, money-centered, void of good values, criminal-minded and who need to be in jail until they get the correct kind of supervision and guidance to get on a good and positive road of being the first grouping of human characteristics I listed here a few line before this . There are many, many police – I think the majority of police of all colours, who are equally these things as well—the first grouping of character traits I mentioned here. . I don’t think most police get up in the morning saying to themselves ``Let me kill one of those Black teens today.’’ I know for sure that this is not true.  I also know there are police officers whose characters fall right directly into the second grouping of People with the character traits I mentioned here.  I also know that the election of Mr. Larry Krisner  (Do the research)as the Democratic nominee for District Attorney is a direct result of the Black community and many White Philadelphians, standing up and saying enough is enough, let’s do something positive about the police’s misconduct around the way Black teenagers and Black young adults are treated and change this for the better. Mr. Krisner is a Jewish fellow and I voted for Him because I had the confidence in Him because He was endorsed by some good and solid unions in Philadelphia and my State Senator Mr. Vincent Hughes. Even though Mr. Hughes hasn’t been able to find me a job in 40 years as I have mostly voted as a Democrat, I still have some confidence in Him because He endorsed Mr. Kravner, who has a long record in Civil Rights and Human Rights advocacy. He will most assuredly be the new District Attorney here in Philadelphia because of the lopsided Democratic voting rolls here in the City of Brotherly LOVe.  Mr. Kravner is under pressure from the Black and Progressive community here in Philadelphia to do His due diligence and bring justice, real justice to the City regarding police misconduct and other things that the other previous District Attorneys let slide under the proverbial rug here in Philadelphia.  Police in blue should be arrested and serve time for anything illegal they do just like anybody else, including me, in Philadelphia. That includes the Mayor or any member of City Council or any other high office holder. It is that simple.  I think and have written the Fraternal Order of Police about this, I think the City’s police need another choice when they vote in a union representative. They need another one besides the Guardian Civic League and the Fraternal Order of Police. There needs to be a policeman’s union that is not Black, but is very much AGAINST racism, racial hatred and of progressive thought and progressive action.  There are hundreds of White, Asian, Black and Latin police officers who don’t want to be associated with the Fraternal Order of Police because of the racist stands they have taken on many cases, issues and situations.  I don’t blame them for this and I highly suggest they gather together and take on the job of getting better union representation for themselves. I don’t know if you HAVE to be a member of the Fraternal Order of Police even if you are a member of the Guardian Civic League. (Do the research).

7) KoTch Brothers. {do the research} Hate is something infection, as LOVe is also. Why we hate has probably been examined in over a dozen books. You two blood brothers are not only guilty of hating Black People and the Progressive Left. You hate for no reason. Why God let you get a hold of a dollar I’ll never know. If I could give you a punishment for your consistent and on-going work to destroy the Progress of Black People, the Progressive Left and the Democratic Party it would be to not be able to control even a single dollar or any amount of money in any Way, shape or form including any type of bank transactions electronic or otherwise. Legal people in your hire or who support you must change their tune and turn such evil work around in favor of the very good-hearted and good natured People I mention in this story. This is due to the endless suffering you have worked to inflict on the poor and the innocent. I ask People of kind heart and LOVlyness  not to buy Dixie Cup products or Brawney Paper Towels because as far as I know you own these products. Please do the research and find out what other products the KoTch Brothers own. I believe they also own utility companies and oil companies. Such companies must be boycotted by all People who care about humanity and Black People and poor People and all People who want to see Justice and Freedom on this precious little earth we have been given the rare opportunity to share. I also ask that GOD not make it possible for the KoTch Brothers to not be able to hand even a thin dime on to the next generation of their family, or any friend or companion or other Person – even the unknowing – who might at some future time give the money back to you willingly or unknowingly in any such formation that it might take know to man or GOD or unknown to man or God. People like you have been surmountable to such hatred spewing across this great and fine country and world that you must be stopped by any and all means necessary.   I also ask GOD to think up Ways to make your lives as uncomfortable as possible, because you have made our lives as Progressive and Radical left Black People uncomfortable and sometimes a living Hell as we have worked to make happiness, pride and comfort a thing for the poor, helpless, the innocent and the Black especially.  A few People will ask who I think I Am delving into punishments that may take a few days to stick and become effective. Frankly, I Am no better than any other man or woman. But I have been put in a position to be able to help others and I take my job quite seriously. Finally, I ask that any roadblocks you have placed – as KoTch Brothers or as any other entity, in the way of others who might also be working towards the progress of the Progressive Left, Black People or any People wanting good and positive change in this work, I ask that those roadblocks be lifted right away and that KoTch money itself be handed over to the Black and the poor or good heart and good nature who want to see themselves lifted in an effective and on-going Way and that all efforts by the KoTch Brothers to step on the poor and the Black or any other People working for progress be stopped immediately and thusly, and with the hands of God be turned around to help such people mentioned here. Such People we should be helping and not hurting are those Transgendered People of good will and good fortunate enough to be Black or poor and who want to authentically help our world and our planet become mo Better at itself helping such people and also Black People who are authentically engaged in helping Poor People, creating justice and fairness, and all such People who are engaged in these justice oriented activities including women, Native People, Latino and Latina People, Asian People, East Indian People, or any such People including Gay and Lesbian, Straight People, bisexual People, or asexual People, religious or ill religious People of all faiths and professions and incomes who want to see progressive change – I ask that these People be able to work out their differences and never, ever again be stopped in their work by any forces or people ever conjured up at all.. And that includes the KoTch Brothers.  May all your efforts as the KoTch Brothers or any other entity to pay off any People or person or entity in this world or any others be stopped  and again turned around to help the most unfortunate, formerly homeless, homeless, weak, downtrodden, or unknowing.  I also ask GOD that MR. Harry Belafonte’s voice and personhood, in whatever formation, move into the far, far future to lecture, write, make movies and so forth to tell the story of the KoTch Brothers in a fair and balanced Way so the world can be warned about you.  This is the gift I give to the World today and for all time in the future. So help me GOD. Amen and Ashe’.

the Courageous and the wicked: Human Evaluations About the People You Know. .

the Courageous and the wicked: Human Evaluations.

More Evaluations of My Human Companions // Friends Here on this Precious Planet Earth.


Part B.

  1. --  Lady Diana. I wasn’t that impressed at first, not paying much attention to the Royal Family as I toiled away at my work as a Human Rights activist, Black Activist and Gay Rights Activist.  However, over time, I saw you as a relentless leader who had many of the same political beliefs I had. In you death, I began to see you as a role model for me and thousands of others, and a victim of the Royal Family’s conceded, traitorous, and ungodly work to continue to dominate economically and sustain White Supremacy. You worked against this and paid for this with your life.  When you married the Arab gentleman, even though He was well connected and wealthy, the Royal Family was egested,(Look Up Spelling)  angry and out for revenge and received it at your death. I know for a fact that those flash camera men might have caused your death by car accident, but the long arm of the Royal English Family was at the root of it.  I also know you were becoming a world renowned anti-war activist as you insisted that the United States Pentagon  unearth the many war mines that had been placed in Africa and elsewhere – mostly Angola—and this anti-mine campaign of yours was beginning to show the Pentagon for the ruthless, uncaring, wrong-doers many of them are. The Pentagon didn’t appreciate this and I think the arm that reached out to your car and destroyed you and your boyfriend can  be traced back to the Pentagon as well.  Some People think heaven is only for Black People, but believe me, if I have anything to do with it, you are here as well.  Your memory will not be destroyed, and your work will live on into the far off future. The world is thankful for what you were able to achieve while you were a human with a human existence. As a positive Spirit I know for sure you continue your work. I Think you are especially Blessed by God and I wish, humbly, that you share some of those blessings with me for the hard work I am doing and not forget me. -- The little guy on 41st Street.  I also wish your children well  and Pray they take on a positive role in helping the world in whatever Ways they can.
  2. The Queen of England. You are a vampire. A blood sucker of the planet who gets away with looking real good in the public. I don’t like to call White poor People trash, but you are Dirty White Trash. (That come not only from me, but from many of the poor Black People in the Community where I live.) .  You have taken the life’s blood from entire countries in Africa and East India, and left those places, through plunder, stealing, rape, destruction and greed, you have left those places in need and want. What you give back is about 3% of what you have taken. If I could legally confiscate all the wealth you have stolen from Africa and East India I would do so in a heartbeat.  You ruthlessness will be rewarded to you by GOD with more than a sore ankle or a sore hip. You will get your come-up-ense as soon as GOD works His // Her Ways and take good care of you and exposes you for what and Who you really are. I suggest that People Goggle and  also look under and put in the Ruthless Queen of England if they want to find out the truth about you and all those African diamonds you are seen parading around in that were stolen from Africa along with the rubies, emeralds  and other gems, gold, oil and so forth – all plundered and stolen from the poor People in Afriac. .  The English government has been in deep compliance with your dirty and threatarious (LOOK UP WORD) work for generations, as you have outlived several Prime Ministers of England. If I travel to England it will be to visit the Black history sights not to see your blasted guard change.  Keep doing the charity work you do, but it will never buy you a ticket to heaven, where Lady Diana does Her work in perpetuity .  This is not to even mention the brutal, heartless enslavement of hundreds of Africans to do your horrible world domination work that once stretched around the globe, but has been properly receding for decades.  Your ``subjects’’ who are proud of your work look on in ignorance or turn their collective heads away from the Human Rights violations that carry your brand name and stamp. Your image in carefully tailored by the media to exclude the horrible things like beheadings, mass incarceration, murder, economic plunder and the literal rape of a land and Black People in far too much of Africa. I am suppose to forgive People like you, but I extend that work to GOD who has the last word on your fate.  You sit on over $300 billion dollars in stolen wealth and then you help the English government discriminate against foreigners and curb back on government benefits which makes it hard on far too many in England. Especially for the poor. You are a dastardly coward. I have been told to keep things positive, but I’m sorry, a proper criticism of you is not only in order, but a very positive thing in deed.  I just Pray that People get the courage and find the time to read more about you than what is put in the elite white – run, White Supremist press about you -- reading the truth about you and making their own judgments.
  3. Mr. Curtis Jones, city councilman of Philadelphia. I looked on early as you ran, as almost a child, against City official Marg Tartaglioni (Look up Spelling—Chair City Committee Voting Etc. ). You were proud, angry courageous, caring, determined, GODLY, regal – a political Lion, an articulate  Tiger ready, willing and able to kick some high knee for the Black community. {Righteously so, it was shortly after the time or during the time rizzo lost his bid for a third term as Mayor. } I was very, very proud of you for running for that seat, even though you lost.  However, your loss was just an internal signal for you to come charging back to win the next time. You have done some great things in office as a City Councilman. That stands true and ripe.  However, you are not making the kind of waves you need to make any longer. That $170,000. Salary you make as a sitting City Councilman (Do the Research) , has helped you get into a position where you turn your back on people losing their houses to gentrification; suffering from police brutality; or suffering in poverty.  I offer you the opportunity to call my office and find out what we can work on together to repair the dastardly situations Black Philadelphians find themselves in  as too many White developers are greasing way too many palms here in the City of Brotherly LOVe so they can destroy Black neighborhoods and make boatloads of $$$...  You can do a lot better, and I pray you do.  I am disappointed with you, but hopeful that you are either replaced with fresh talent who can do much better, or turn your life around and face the True God and find out your true calling as a decent, honorable, and ethical Black  politician here in Philadelphia.
  4. Marg Tartaglioni. You reeked with South Philadelphia. You were a heartless, corrupted, rude, God-Forsaken woman that Black People resented and White racist South Philadelphians LOVed to death.  The word corruption rang like a bell when you walked in a room. A rizzo crony from way back, you made sure as many Black People were taken off the voting rolls, regardless of their legitimate qualifications as a Philadelphia voter. I believe you are dead and gone, and I think your daughter, who is likewise a politician, is much improved from what you were.  You were cheap-looking, unprofessional, hateful, and disgusting. You sparked Mr. Curtis Jones and His partner at the time, to take up what money and power they had at the time, and run for office against you.  {It was around 1979 or 1980) Do the research). You twisted arms, cajoled people, and did favors and shamefully won your seat again.  GOD will never let you rest in your grave. If there is a devil,  he has charge of you now and probably has you cooking  some crazy food for the rest of your life in Hell, where you belong.  Being progressive and revolutionary and staying positive means turning negative at this point. I can’t find anything nice to say about you. One thing I will say is, I have to give an apology to your family who have, some of them, have worked towards racial harmony in our city. But for you – eat ashes.
  5. Frank rizzo. I will not give you the respect to capitalize your last name. You have so much red blood on your hands, that I cannot even mention it.  One thing you did that makes me really angry was you made a legitimate Black business man – a Black refrigerator repair man – you made Him and His business put a fire hydrant in  His North Philadelphia store basement at His own cost.  I know this because I interviewed the Black store owner (You can look this up in the Philadelphia Tribune from 1970 to 1981 when I used the name Trace Gibson as a reporter).  He has a fire at His place of business during the winter months and His business was destroyed.  I always thought the fire was suspicious, but I never proved it. You were a kind and gentle man of good nature and good heart. You must have passed by now. I am sure you are on the shoulder of GOD with Ms. AKYRA MURRAY, who guides my every thought and decision, having had Her life snuffed out by Philadelphia police.  There are so many things I didn’t like about you. Things I really hated like the fact that you made some Black Brothers who were in the Black Panthers strip naked (The photos can be found in the Philadelphia Daily News);  you had Black school children’s heads whipped in at a legal and open school demonstration for better education; you killed MOVe members in Philadelphia at the shoot-out  on August 8th, 1968 where Delbert Africa was kicked brutally by police as He stood there defenseless with His arms held out like Jesus Christ. He had His natural hair in dreadlocks pulled and ripped out by police as He was struck with a police helmet. (Do the research yourself and look in You Tube under MOVe  Shootout 1968 Philadelphia or Delbert Africa. He is now, some 30 years later, still languishing in jail in or near Philadelphia. I ask for what? You also laughed with a police night stick under your cummerbund as stupid Philadelphia Daily News reporters looked on and took your pictures. Yu failed at getting elected for a third term as Mayor – one of your greatest achievements, in my humble opinion.  You were corrupt, unprofessional, hateful towards Black People except Bill Peterson (my Uncle) and that Uncle Tom Boxer  Joe Frazer (Do the research).  Not only were you, as Mayor and Police Commissioner, unprofessional and hateful towards Black People, Liberals, and Progressives, you were an embarrassment as we prepared for the City’s bicentennial in 1976, you called out the National Guard or Army in fear of violence. There was no violence, but would-be tourist stayed away in droves as the national media spread the story like that Army sandwich on a shingle.  I was very young (22-23), but you were a natural embarrassment to me as a Philadelphia’s citizen.  There are hundreds of other things you did that were unlawful, stupid and relentlessly vulgar like putting Black men in jail just to be either hurt, killed or raped. (If I am wrong about this, please prove it and send me the proof. I will detract the statement).  You are the target of hatred by anyone decent and LOVing who lived through your time in office.  There must be a special place in Hell with your name in it, I hope your negative Spirit has been banned from the planet earth. If it is within my powers to do so I hereby proclaim your Spirit banished from the planet earth. Cracker!
  6. Pam Africa.  You hold wisdom and faith in your heart and soul. You might not be a traditional religious person, but I know GOD has found a home in your work and in your house.  I know How hard it is to control anger because I have been hospitalized for anger issues myself. I used to cringe when I saw you speak publicly about the police and police brutality.  It has taken me years to understand the true nature and the true insidiousness of the Cracker and the police (Not all of them in my opinion)  and it is Black People like you who have taught me many lessons. You have led the Way in the Mumia case {Mumia Abu Jamal} and I know Frank rizzo rolls over in His grave after you, His legal team and the Power of the People  got Mumia a life sentence  -- turning over a death sentence.  Your level of courage, pride, boldness, woman-wonder, your intelligence at legal issues and the ways of White folks is beyond magnificent.  Over the years, you have tempered your anger a bit and cooled down the cursing, but you have never, ever stopped LOVing Mumia, the Black political movement and your Black People as well as MOVe members and ATAC members. Mother Tarrasa has different tactics, but you  both work with and for  honor, justice,  truth and decency.  Many People don’t know you have a family. How in the world you had time to have children when you took on so much work, I’ll never understand. You are not rich, which makes me angry. You have NOT been rewarded by our Black community, many of us being too fearful and stupid (frankly) to understand How important your work is. I am always saying How stupid and foolish it is for us as Black People, to go to Asian stores and forget about supporting our own People’s important work as activists.  We enjoy our jobs not realizing that it is often a Black activist like Pam Africa who helps keep the pressure on for those jobs to exists in the first place. I know MOVe, which you are a golden member of, had a conference recently in Philadelphia. I was too busy to take the time out to at least hear a speaker or two. Yet, MOVe literally saved my life.  I have guilt around this, but I’ll make it up to you and Ramona one day soon.   By the Way, some Black Philadelphians don’t know it, but you are a Black female general  on a par with any Black general in African History including Hannibal. You are a true revolutionary who will never be forgotten by Her People and this writer.  GOD BLESS MOVe forever.  GOD Bless you forever. When you get a chance, I don’t know if you have been there, but travel to Cuba and Africa when you can. Yu deserve it and will learn much.  
    The Revolutionary Cuban People. We, as revolutionaries, sit at your feet and learn. You defeated the United States and ousted them from your newly formed Island Nation as Batista was deposed and defeated. I have visited your island nation and was deeply impressed. I will never forget what I learned, the lectures, the food, the handsome men, and most of all, ALL  the People when I traveled there in circa 1991. The entire continent of Africa sits as a student at your feet – including the feet of White Cubans who are revolutionary as well.  Many People still don’t know that Cubans are, half of the population, are of African descent.  You are not brass and harsh like we might think revolutionaries are. I found the Cuban People to be kind, generous, intelligent, LOVing, decent, humble, knowledgeable of at lest two or three languages, funny, and have the brightest eyes and the brightest students as any People on God’s earth. By the Way, you are often also Christians, having taken on the Catholic religion in your own Way and your own time.  I don’t like the fact that it was President John Kennedy who ordered the Bay of Pigs invasion to try to destroy Cuba’s revolution and when that didn’t work, He started the embargo against Cuba which deeply impacted negatively on the Cuban People for generations. {I LOVe the Kennedy family, but this is one [point about John Kennedy I do NOT like}. By the Way, your land is beautiful as are your People. I met a Cuban women who ws scared to speak with me about Cuba. Other People, about 10 of them were not scared to talk. I think this one woman may have been someone who was being victimized for her anti-Castro views; or was under suspicion as colluding with the Central Intelligence Agency or maybe She just thought I was such a collaborator – which I am not and have never been. I tried to respect Her right not to speak with me. Many Cubans know the heated lies the Western Press tells about Cuba so they are leery of talking to people who present themselves =as reporters or writers. This is totally understandable.  The lush vegetation, the beautiful plants and wondrous flowers, Figs and mangoes hanging from the trees, beautiful, soulful salsa music. Beautiful men and beautiful women. And those old cars you have refurbished for decades because we can’t seem to get you new BMW’s and new Mercedes that you all --  each Cuban --  deserves. One point of clarification that most North Americans don’t understand and that I found our clearly when I traveled to Cuba. The thing the Cuban People value more than anything else is not only Fidel Castor – who will never die here in Cuba, but the Revolution itself. Anything or any entity that would overthrow the Revolution is seen as,  an enemy. This is why some People are in prison. They are usually guilty of crime {very little here}  but guilty of colluding with the Central Intelligence Agency or other agencies that would overthrow the Cuban Revolution and re-enslave the Revolutionary Cuban People in favor of Capitalist expansion for profit makers. This is not what the Cuban People want. This is why the Cuban government has been accused of so-called human rights violations – for putting some people in jail, when in fact it is the North American government who has hundreds of innocent People in jail in this country North America or Turtle Island or the United States of Native America.   Go yee Cuba among free men of the world and free women and make your ideas and thought those desired by all Real People questing real  freedom and real justice among the entire globe and especially in Africa.  Help Africa see you have not lost your cultural advantage by allowing freedom to Gay and lesbian People. Your doctors rock the world with their free work of healing, bringing food, shelter and healing elements wherever they go. Don’t forget your heroes like Ernesto Che  Guevara , Fidel Castor and Jose Martin and help us often foolish  North Americans to  know the truth about our government and the Cuban Revolution which wiped out prostitution, hunger {largely) and  corruption {largely} .  Your country is again, a bold, courageous and decent gift for the world.  Not to be overthrown, but appreciated, Honored and LOVed.  I ask the world to read Progressive histories about Cuba {Put Progressive History of Cuba or Revolutionary Cuban History in or in WWW.Google.Com and look for videos and books on the subject. Visit there and visit stable parts of Africa as well.  You will be Blessed through GOD most High.

1-- Denzel Washington,

2—My mother once called Spike Lee (look up the spelling of His name)  ``a little nothing.’’  Mom had a Way with words and didn’t bite Her tongue. I don’t think Mom hated Spike Lee or was jealous of His success. I think She thought He was pretty cool. However,  I have pondered this statement ``a little nothing’’ and Mr. Lee’s movies over and over again in my head and I can’t figure out what’s at the root of what She was trying to say. Mom was also brilliant intellectually and LOVed Black People, so I’m figuring She wouldn’t say such a thing without a purpose in saying it. 

``Inside Job’’ is a film Mr. Lee made that broke new ground for Him and helped propel Him into a role as a main stream director.  He had some major stars like Jody Foster and Denzel Washington in this one. It was about a bank heist that never really happened. I would have to get the film again to figure out the plot completely, but that is the gist of it. I have always wondered why Black celebrity types can’t just get together and formulate their own distribution companies and overreach the big grasping hand of the White man, and distribute our films ourselves.   The distribution of films seems, to me, to e what is holding us back from approving films ourselves with Big Budgets and overstepping the financial risk which is the major excuse White distribution companies like Metro Goldwyn Miller (Look up Spelling), Dream Works and Seventy-Five Cent, LLC.  

At first blush, Mr. Lee seems like a really cool Brother.  His company is said to be a great one to work for. My therapist wants me to call Mr. Lee and ask for a job.  There are many jobs I could do for Mr. Lee including executive director of His major office; assistant director of staff;  or researcher.  I haven’t called. I am in need of work and pay really bad and barely have food on the table. I had an air sandwich tonight, for example.

3—Diana Ross is a wonderful singer and actress, but I have often wondered why She hasn’t ever taken a liking to Black men, except for Barry Gordy.  She married two White boys and had her children by them. This is Her prerogative, I’m not judging, just stating fact.  If you ever see Diana Ross on Television, She looks spooked. Something is really bothering Her that She won’t talk about. She has never, as far as I can tell, been very philanthropic  like Denzel Washington is of like Rudy Dee and Ossie Davis were.  Ms Ross may well just want to keep Her giving secret for political reasons or for whatever reasons, or maybe She doesn’t have so much control over Her money as the public – you and me – might think.  Her last husband (Get his name) was a billionaire who died in (get year) a skiing accident t. Apparently He left Her several billions of dollars. Yet I have NEVER seen any newspaper headlines showing where She puts Her money. This would take a very big mattress indeed!.  Diana Ross wanted to go on a probably final tour about seven years ago, but couldn’t get approval for money. Why didn’t She use Her own money? She could have certainly gotten together the cash She needed and got some managers and gone on tour Herself. Even if She couldn’t have gotten the original Supremes together She could have gotten some other pretty good singers and done a stage and light show that would have certainly brought in some major cash residuals for Herself.  ``LOVe Hangover,’’  ``The Boss,’’ ``Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’’ alone would have had me paying for a ticket and I know many young Black People would have bought tickets to experience Her for the first time.  What skeletons does Ms Ross have in Her house?  I think of ``Mahogany’’  which was Her second major film. She played a character named Tracy who was a brilliant fashion designer who was in LOVe with a gentleman from the Black community running for Congress in the formation of one Billy Dee Williams. Gene Shallot (Look up for spelling)  the film critic said the ``acting was rather wooden, but the film was oak,’’ in His opinion.  I liked the film, but the scene with the car crash with Anthony Hopkins (Do the research), was a bit much.  I would like to see Ms Diana Ross and several other B lack Celebrities do more philanthropy like Denzel Washington and Kevin Heart are doing.  One thing I can say for Ms. Diana Ross. She took several years off from Her career to bring up Her children in the Way She wanted to. For this I give Her high credits and high recommendations.  However, I would like to see Her do more philanthropy and speak out on some political issues if She so pleases.  One thing I have always been concerned about with Ms Ross is her weight. She is rather thin. I am sure She gets the proper diet and exercise, so maybe it is a health issue. I pray it is not anything serious and that She lives a good and long life.  It would be a triple scandal if She were diagnosed with HIV / AIDS because it would impact so tremendously on Her beautiful family.  Her children may be biracial, but they are some very good actors included there including Tracey Ross and  Her son (Look Up names). I have watched them in films and think they have great potential.

4 Samuel L. Jackson has to have a secret also.  mr. Jackson  gets so many coveted roles in Hollywood that  this is very, very strange because his acting style is OK, but nothing special. The character he played in ``Pulp Fiction’’ had an epiphany (Look Up for spelling and meaning) after when he was shot at and didn’t die.   Maybe mr. Jackson also experienced something like this in real life. his character in ``Brown’’ was ruthless and when he was ripped off for some significant lute, he got really mad and got even.  his character ended up dead as a door nail {I am sorry for the cliché, Brother Joseph Beam. LOVe, LOVe, LOVe}. My theory is, not that anybody asked me. My theory is that mr. Jackson has ``some major’’ on the fat cats in Hollywood and they want to keep him satisfied lest he reveal whatever it is they have on him and start a real squeak.  I have no idea what it is. I could think up a thousand people and a thousand things, but personally I think it is something about that former record producer of Whitney Houston’s, who was also into the film industry and film production. (Look up his name). I heard he was Gay, which is still the kiss of death unless you do a benevolent coming out like (look up the guy with His own show about architecture, or Gen – look her up as well – ABC, went to CVS with the First Lady – the respected and honored Mrs. Michelle Obama).  This is the most puzzling of all because I really can’t figure out what all the hubbub is about because I thought we were over the craziness about coming out and being Gay in Hollywood or anyplace else.  Even Wall Street workers and military heads are supposedly allowed to be Gay or Lesbian now a days and everybody almost applauds. At least this was so during the Obama Administration, which if you are Black, of course everybody knows we still have them in office someplace in Texas of Chicago.  I personally no longer accept a White president. Back to mr. Jackson. Strange.  Maybe he has figured out the ``Out of Africa’’ movement among progressive Whites. This is where all White settlers and White businessmen in Africa have to get  out in a few short months and look for housing and economic opportunities elsewhere and leave Africa to the Africans.  Thousands of Black professionals and Black Nationalists have signed onto this theory and are actively engaged in getting White folk out of Africa so we can help the continent become stable, resourceful, beautiful and a lively  thriving center point of Black pride and dignity. So, mr. Jackson has power among the Jewish People and he is not letting his Black Hollywood compatriots know How he got it or How they get it. I still go see his movies, but I don’t consider him an ethical person.

5—Becky Raboso.  The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is a Brother I respect. I have been greatly influenced in a positive Way, by not only His rhetoric, but His personal ethics. I have been especially influenced by the potent, direct and biting criticism of our established order including our often wrong-headed and corrupt government  and our often wrong-headed, unethical and corrupt corporate structure. But I don’t model my own activism after His and I don’t want to and can’t become a Black Muslim. The reason I can’t become a Muslim is two-fold. One, I don’t want to become a Black Muslim even though I believe many of the political dictates they believe in. I am a Christian and LOVe being a Christian. I believe in Liberation Theology and am partly a polytheist. (Look up this work before you go public with this).  Two, I have often wondered what The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan  does with all the money {$} they collect from people selling books, DVDs, newspapers {The Final Call}, and fees for events, schools, and collect at Mosque {If they do collect $ at Mosque}. It seems to me they could have done a great deal more to construct an alternative society for Muslims than they have. Now I don’t know what it cost to pay staff and maintain existing Black Muslim infrastructure, so I’m only going from what I see on the surface. I really shouldn’t even be giving my opinion without examining their books and such, but this is what I feel and think from what I know. I have to say I do not agree with the persecution of Muslims nor do I think the terroristic tactics a small minority of them use are useful, or helpful. I think such violent behavior must be persecuted no matter if the right wing or the left wing or the middle wing has taken part in that violent behavior. There was a point in my life that I not only attend meetings at Mosque Number 12 in North Philadelphia, I actually sat in the office of Minister Rodney Muhammad and talked about my interests in becoming a Black Muslim. Since then I have changed my thinking and my mind and found a really supportive Black church in Unity Fellowship Christ Church of Philadelphia and no longer want to even entertain the idea of becoming a Black Muslim. Plus, they don’t’ accept out Gay people, and I am not going to live my life in the closet as a repressed homosexual.  Two. And this is a related reason, I think The Honorable Louis Farrakhan is way too critical of Gay people. Not only that, I think He has a reason that goes beyond  the norm and is at the root or crux of His hatred of Gays. There is no denying that a lot of the Brothers who become Black Muslims come out of the prison system. And you know what goes on in prison. A lot of homosexual relations and man on man rape and man on man sex because there is no access to the female persuasion.  This is a secret that the Black Muslims don’t want to talk about. If there are a lot of Black Muslims coming out of the prison system and a lot of man on man sex in the prison system it would seem to follow that there are either repressed homosexuals in the Black Muslim movement or a lot of undercover or Down Low action among the Black Muslims.  Then Brother Minister Farrakhan is critical of homosexuality. This would make an inner conflict for some Brothers who want to be themselves and ``come out’’ as Black and Gay.  Being a former Calypso singer, I have to wonder if Minister Louis Farrakhan has ever had any personal experiences that have sharpened His tongue in regards to some experiences He Himself has had or that a floes family member has had.  I am just putting out thoughts and have no evidence here. I know How respected and in what high regard many Black men hold the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Like I said, I do also, but I’m a writer, a thinker and a journalist, and a businessman. One thing I must say also. Gays and Lesbians and Transgendered People do have some issues they themselves need to deal with as far as their own ethics and behaviors. There is way too much youth worship, way too much self hatred, way too much drinking, partying  and avoiding self-adjustment problems, and way too much free, open, sometimes kinky and unrestrained sex.  (By the way there is a whole community of People of all races that also take part in these behaviors who are straight or heterosexual.). I don’t approve of this either. To a similar point, however,  the White and Black Gay community needs to self examine itself and come up with some community-wide standards that are at least goals for behavior and actually work towards those goals.  I do not hold my tongue because I might step on someone’s toes with my words. I Pray all the time that I will only speak the truth and putout thoughts in my writing that are going to do good for Black People and People who work hard and honestly to improve the circumstances of Black People and Poor People, create justice, create decency, create freedom and stabilize democratic social orders that are fair and free no matter what part of the world they live in.  But there is something strange about the bitterness and hatred that comes from Minister Louis Farrakhan when He talks about homosexuals.  Another concern I have is whether   or not the Nation of Islam has deep connections with the Black Mafia and the Black or even the White underworld.  I can’t prove this, but I have heard very reliable People tell me that this is so. A former Black Muslim friend of mine who was a member of the Fruit of Islam told me that there is still until this day prostitution and illegal drug sales going on within the Black Muslim movement.  I had turned my head when I was younger because I didn’t want to believe it. I know they, the Black Muslims, do great things, but I once met with a group of elite Black People – mostly Brothers and one sister—who got around in a circle in Washington, D.C. and said some of these same things as if they were fact.  So this I wonder about also. Mind you, this doesn’t take away from the fact that the Black Muslims, during the time of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad,  got more men off of illegal drugs than ANY government institution within the United States government. It also does not refute the fact that the Black Muslims and the Black Muslim movement holds fast and strong as a righteous and positive movement that helps people in many positive Ways, including get off of drugs, have stronger ethics, and more determination and discipline in their daily lives which translates into stronger families, stronger family values and more success in business. The good, in my mind, outweighs the bad.   None of the articles I have written here have been written with revenge, vindictiveness, bitterness, hatred or hurtfulness in my heart and soul. I am working to help us become LOVing and decent souls. I want us to do our best and be honest with ourselves.

Singing off: Brother Tracy Gibson…


6—Shariff Street  (Look up the spelling of His name, or call the committee of 70) is now a sitting State Senator from Pennsylvania and the son of a former Mayor of Philadelphia.  He is a very handsome young man, but He was made to stand outside of the political system fighting to find a seat to win successfully for several years before He finally won the seat of former State Senator Shirley Kitchen. The seat (Look up information) covers parts of North Philadelphia (do the research).  I am going to do the research to see if He has a family and all that. I know He is a lawyer, which helps a great deal if you want to be a city politician of state politician in Philadelphia.  Mr. Street is getting very good reports about How He is handling His constituent problems in His district.  Apparently He works hard and puts in long hours.  In a related matter, it was Shareef Street who stood with me outside of my house on 4635 Sansom Street as my house burned. There was no other sitting politician or recognized figure who was with me. My first cousin Vicky Wilmore was also there, by some strange circumstance.  Believe me, I never forgot the fact that  Shareef was there supporting me. (Thank GOD, but the Way, my house didn’t burn  down completely. The roof was badly damaged, however., but I was able to move back in quickly and get the damage repaired after a n adjuster took stock of the situation and I got money for the damage from insurance to pay for the repairs.  Street is deeply politically connected in Philadelphia. Yet it took Him a long time to get a political power base, even though His record is one of really ``being there’’ for People.  I wish Mr. Street well in his time in office, and I am confident that He will continue to do well. I don’t know if I’m on a trip this morning of ``misery LOVes company’’ but I still want to wonder why He took so long to get that political base He sought after for so long.  Was it because He isn’t much of a fiery speaker? Was He unable to rouse voters to go to the polls for Him? Were their rumors about His personal life?  He is a thin man and a little bit effeminate. Maybe the ``Black Community’’ didn’t like or accept something about Him. (Do the research about family).  If He has a family or not He could be bisexual. That is none of my business as long as it doesn’t interfere with the excellent work I hear He is doing for the Black community.  Are you getting at what I’m trying to put across here in these articles. We as a Black community need to stop thumping the Bible open and judging People about being ``GAY’’ like it is a crime. This is an era in which Gay marriage is accepted by the highest court in the land. I’m not saying Sharieff is Gay. But we have to evaluate People on more than that. Shareef has been a community activist for decades and has been successful at it and got some recognition. I wish this Brother well, no matter what His personal life is like. I am sure His father is proud of Him as well. 




7—Jannie L. Blackwell (Look up her research)  has been in City Council in Philadelphia since (Look up on doing research).  She has been a stall work, a  legal representative and a city politician for decades. She sits on the education committee and wants there to be an elected School Board, as do I.  Her commitment to Her West Philadelphia district is without a doubt, commendable. I don’t know How She does it with such consistency over such a long period of time.  She makes sure one group that deals in a positive Way with Africa – Echoes of Africa – gets proper funding.  She works diligently and hard at Her job and I would give her a C+. I say C+ because of two reasone. Fist She has been involved in scandal involving the Black Junior Mafia here in Philadelphia.  (Some kind of love twist I believe). I know it is very hard to stay out of scandal as a Philadelphia Black politician. I know there are temptations made to look just ripe and ready and good, by forces who themselves are not coming anywhere close to being ethical. And I know How much money gets flashed around in Philadelphia politics. None of those reasons are good enough excuses to fall off the beaten path and do things that are obviously wrong in the name of money, power, or wanting to maintain office.  I haven’t voted for Jannie for years, even though I have lived in Her district for quite some time(Check on this).  The reason I have not voted for Her brings us to the other reason Why I think She should not be in office. She has been there way too long. There needs to be term limits locally where a city politician can only stay In office for four terms. Anything else is unacceptable. // The Mayor only gets two terms. Why are we allowing limitless terms for City Council People?  There is a personal twist here as well. Ms Blackwell apparently has gone to bed with one of my ex-friends.  He was a thug type and in and out of prison. I was deeply in LOVe with Him and helped Him pay for needed items for His then baby like diapers and other baby items. He was married at the time, but told me (A damned fool at the time) that the woman He was married to didn’t mean anything to Him. I understand the pervasiveness of this individual named Blair Simmons.  I once sat up all night just looking at Blair sleep quietly after we had had an hours-long intimacy session while I live on Sansom Street.  He told me He slept with Jannie. I have no other proof, except the newspaper headlines that she slept with another ``thug’’ whose name I can’t remember. These allegations can be traced back through newspaper headlines in the Philadelphia Tribune.  These allegations make Ms. Blackwell sound like a rather unethical person. I want her to get out before they take away her pension.   Ms. Blackwell will get a very large pension for her time served in City Council. But she needs to step down and leave space for a young Bright Black face. No, I’m not talking about myself. I’m talking about a person who is qualified, educated, reliable, responsible, incorruptible, articulate, talented, electable, attractive and deeply concerned about Black People. They also need to have a special concern for Black children and their proper education as well as  be family oriented, without being homophobic. A delicate balance, if ever there was one.  Jannie capitalized off of the family name of Blackwell, from her husband Lucian (Look Up, Research) who served in that seat for years also.  SO I’m guilty of the typical political back slapping stuff myself, to a degree. I smile in Jannie’s face, but let it be known that I want her out of office.  The reason for that is sometimes I needs her help, like right now when I need a job.  Yet I truly feel she has been in office for long enough of a duration.  Enough said.
